I'm Over 50 and These are Must Have Accessories to Compliment and Upgrade Your Look this Season

Updated: Oct 12, 2022

I'm over 50 and these are must have accessories to compliment and upgrade your look this season. Styling a look is not only about the clothes. A well styled look is often not complete without the perfect accessories. There are a few key accessories I rely on and are on trend to help take my wardrobe to the next level and I wanted to share them with you.


You can officially add pearls to the list, definitely a popular trend from the 80s and 90s that is making a comeback in 2022. In case you haven't noticed, 2022 is officially the year of bringing back and updating past fashion trends, and to no surprise, we've spotted pearls on the must have list.

There is very little that can match the shimmery perfection of a pearl. They can give subtle sophistication or glamorous excitement. I have a few pearl pieces in my jewelry collection but just recently purchased a beautiful and simply classic pearl necklace. I cannot wait to wear it. Here are a few more choices.

Next on the list of accessories to upgrade your look this season are, bold or statement eyewear. Whether you are looking to dress your outfit up or dress it down, purposefully selected eyewear can make a difference.

Introducing the Dior oversized square 56mm square sunglasses, finished with CD logo accents at the temples. They are available in black and shiny beige. Other features include 100% UV protection, solid lenses, adjustable nose pads, case and cleaning cloth included, acetate and made in Italy.

If you want that sophisticated look on a budget, the next pair of sunglasses are a great choice. The highly rated Amazon sunglasses are perfect luxury look-a-likes but available at an affordable price. They are oversized square cat eye,100% UV400 protection, comfortable, European style, and high-quality hinges with screws.

I cannot tell you how many times I have misplaced my reading glasses, more than I care to mention. How about adding these cool, blue light blocking, spring hinge readers for women (or men) with an anti-glare filter, and they are oh so lightweight. This 5 pack assortment comes in great colors including black, brown leopard, blue and clear. They will add a little style to any outfit, and yes there are 5 in a pack.


The next must have accessory to upgrade your look this season are chain belts. I have always loved a good chain belt, so for me, they never went out of style. However, after Chanel and other top designers featured them on the runway, they are now the must have accessory to add to your wardrobe.

This first belt by Gucci is antique gold-toned, has a distinctly retro feel, recalling the loose belts of the 1990s. The engraved Interlocking G charm is the defining element of the design, acting as a subtle nod to the House Founder. This style can be worn at the waist.

This silver-toned braided chain belt decorated with metallic butterflies will make any outfit stand out.


Next on the list of must have accessory items to update your looks is the big tote bag. For the past few years, I became accustomed to carrying the bare minimum when going out. I generally reached for a small card case which was big enough to carry only a few necessities such as my id cards and a credit card. I am back to coordinating my looks with my bags and big tote bags are "it" for me. I especially love that there are so many unique styles popping up for the new season.

One of my favorites, the Tory Burch Ella Tote. This lightweight tote with a logo patch is made of durable recycled nylon with a new interior laptop pocket. Ideal for every day and getaways, it has room for all your essentials, and it comes in two sizes, the mini (which is still pretty big) and the regular size (the larger tote).

This red faux leather, large, two short handles shopper is the perfect way to be stylish and functional-at the same time-big enough to fit all of your essentials and more. Love the color!

The flannel tote is a stunner with the two handles at the top, lined and an inner compartment with zipper. The grey flannel tote is oh so nice, perfect for work or any occasion-you decide.

I hope these must have accessories will inspire you to add something new to your wardrobe this season. Sometimes all it takes is a new accessory item to update, compliment and upgrade what you already have in your closet.
